After our great hikes we headed for some more boondocking on Beas Lewis Flat Rd. This was just outside of Capitol Reef up on the hill before Torrey. No Verizon but AT&T worked. The drive had such a pretty landscape. You could see the snow capped mountains behind the desert.
It was just over an hour drive. We gassed up and filled our propane at this hole in the mountain gas station.
Here are the coordinates/location.
Nice fire ring surrounded by some boulders. If the winds calm down we may actually have a fire.
Lee & Trace and Greg & Cori
Our rigs with Capitol Reef in the background.
It was a surprise to see this blanket of purple as well as such varied colorful rocks.
The scenery was spectacular. Eventually we drove up a very, very steep dirt road with more views.
That's the dirt road looking down from several switchbacks.
Coming down into Boulder.
Hobie enjoying some laptime.
A crazy 14% grade. Not something you'd want to bring a large rig over!
That's Lee in front of us. Hard to tell how steep it is from this picture.
Trace in one of the natural windows.
The colors were once again fascinating. Lots of bright reds and pinks.
You mostly follow Calf Creek. On the other side the walls of the canyon rise high up.
Things were starting to bloom and I liked getting some unusual close ups.
We had to get our picture too!
Me, Cori and Trace taking our turn!
Really love these colors!
There was also a big moon rising.
Hard to read, but someone carved, "This is a nice place. Please keep it clean."
Below Steve and Trace keep warm in their ponchos.
I also didn't get a last picture of Greg and Cori, but we loved spending the last couple of weeks with them hiking, exploring, eating and enjoying time together! Until next time guys!
